CASE CE launches all-new, 3.8 ton electric wheel loader (but wait, there’s more!)

CASE CE is responding to government regulations that are pushing industries towards a zero-emission future by developing a new line of all-electric equipment – which now includes a new, 3.8 ton compact wheel loader.

Last week, CASE Construction Equipment introduced the 12EV, an all-electric 3.8 ton compact wheel loader with a 1.5 ton payload capacity that the company says demonstrates its commitment to zero emissions and alternative fuel solutions.

These new electric vehicles mean more choices for CASE customers, enabling them meet their carbon footprint reduction targets and eco-efficiency goals while providing power and performance on par with their conventional, diesel-powered offerings.

The CASE 12EV comes equipped with a 23 kWh, cobalt-free, lithium-ion battery sends power to a 17 kW motor that delivers drive to the axles, as well as a 22 kW motor that powers the hydraulic system for the loader arms and bucket cylinder. The battery pack is good for up to six hours of continuous operation (depending on load). It can charge overnight on 220V Level 2 charging, or from 10 to 80% on a DC fast charger in just under an hour.

But wait, there’s more!

The 12EV wheel loader is the third production BEV from CASE, following the introduction of the CX15EV and the CX25EV mini excavators that weigh in 1.5 and 2.5 tons, respectively. The excavators are powered by 21.5 kWh and 32.3 kWh battery packs, respectively, sized to enable “full shift” runtime.

CASE showed off its full line of electric excavators at a UK earlier this summer, the first time UK equipment operators and other stakeholders a chance to sample the battery electric machines and learn about a variety of other carbon reducing initiatives, including sustainable charging and waste management.

Electrek’s Take

We had the chance to interview CNH (CASE/New Holland) chief innovation officer (CIO) Marc Kermisch on the Heavy Equipment Podcast a few weeks ago, where we discussed the impact of automation and electrification on construction and agriculture, the lack of new farm and equipment operators, alternative fuels, and more. You can check that out, below, and let us know what you think of CASE’s sustainable roadshow in the comments.
